Chicago White Sox second baseman Nick Madrigal will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after undergoing surgery to repair proximal tendon tears in his right hamstring, the team announced Tuesday.

He's expected to be back at full strength in time for spring training next year.

Madrigal, 24, suffered the injury last Wednesday as he tried to beat out an infield single against the Toronto Blue Jays. He was helped off the field and later placed on the 60-day injured list.

The infielder was enjoying a fine season at the plate, batting .305/.349/.425 with a pair of home runs and an AL-best four triples.

Danny Mendick has primarily filled in for Madrigal at the keystone since the injury.
